As­so­ci­ate ed­i­tor JR Sul­li­van wrote “The Vanishing” (p. 64), a tragic story about a fa­ther and son who got lost while hunt­ing. Only one of them was found. How’d you find the story? JRS:

I read about it in a lo­cal pa­per, but the story was short and didn’t talk about what the fam­ily was go­ing through. As a hunter, I couldn’t help but imag­ine my­self in the same sce­nario, and I had a hunch that there was a lot more to the story. Once the in­ter­views started, it quickly be­came ap­par­ent that the fam­ily wanted to tell ev­ery­one how great Shawn was, to honor him.

Have you ever been lost? real

JRS: Not in any way.

I’ve got­ten turned around, and that’s un­nerv­ing enough. I can’t fathom what it must have been like for Trevor, lost in that big wilder­ness. I’d be out of my mind.

What about the fam­ily struck you the most?

JRS: They’re tough as hell. I think a lot of peo­ple in their sit­u­a­tion would have with­ered, but the Hig­ginses are fight­ers.
